App Won’t open

This app is has a glitch that will not allow it to open. I’ve spent over an hour trying to figure it out on google, but I give up. This app is useless if it won’t open!!!

Is It Any Good?

The support customization options make this an excellent choice for teens suffering from stress and anxiety. There are so many ways to tailor Virtual Hope Box to a user's personal preferences.Teens can select images, songs, videos, and quotes to give them hope. If they can connect, they can include people who are important to them, or they can just include things that bring happiness. Having meaningful resources at your fingertips can be incredibly valuable in a moment of doubt or fear. The options to play games, use built-in relaxation exercises (including guided meditation), and create "coping cards" make Virtual Hope Box a standout app resource for in-the-moment relief. If used consistently, it could become the go-to coping resource for teens and adults suffering with stress, anxiety, and PTSD.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
